When you live in a small house extra storage is a must. I found this army green painted box in a dumpster and it was fine but most of the vintage boxes I have all have gold details so, here is a simple solution for gilding on the cheap.
- 3 tones of gold paint
- Low tack detailing tape
Figure out what kind of design you will work best. I decided on a modified grid pattern. Apply tape for your pattern.
Start with your mid gold tone and paint and allow to dry.
Now it’s time for the high lights and low lights. I have a light and dark tone gold. Use your sponge to distribute paint on box. Random works best.
Remove tape while wet. Let dry.
When dry use sandpaper to distress surface if you desire.
